The scan is a little poor to begin with but the article is interesting.
The original cross which is broken is now at the museum in Ulundi by the main gate along with other broken memorials. (November 2022)

Yes its a shame the scans arn't too good at times.
If you endeavour with them you can just about make out what they say which is why I posted them up but it makes your eyes go squiffy after a while.
Some are so bad I don't even bother attempting to read them though it is frustrating when you can read the title but not the article.

Great pictures John
A quick question is it Sobhuza or Gabuza/Gabousa?

Kate,

Apparently Sobhuza is the modern accepted spelling. The variations are Victorian anomalies.
